Before We Leave Arrives On Nintendo Switch


Developer Balancing Monkey Games’ civilization-building title Before We Leave originally launched for PCs and has been a hit there. Now it’s blasting off to conquer new territory: handheld/console hybrids. The Nintendo Switch version of the game just launched today.

As far as games with post-apocalyptic premises go, Before We Leave is one of the sunnier depictions out there. Civilization has been wiped out thanks to a cosmic disaster, and it’s your job to rebuild it one step at a time. Build up towns, manage their resources evenly, and you might unearth ancient technology that can help your society leap forward. Once you cities are thriving, expand to other planets and build colonies there. But watch out for Space Whales! (You only think we’re kidding…)

Before We Leave is now playable on Nintendo Switch. The game has arrived on other consoles too, and is part of XBox Game Pass.
